HARMLESS OBSESSION FOR THE CAPTIVATING MALE LEAD - Chapter 47
Sierra quickly stepped back, blinking bewilderedly.
With her hands politely folded, she wet her lips with a dismayed expression.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. For a moment, I was so surprised that… I didn’t know…”
Well, it was feasible. Rosenia could understand. Who wouldn’t be surprised to see a person suddenly grab his chest and collapse?
‘I’d be lying if I say I don’t feel bad at all, but…’
Rosenia nodded her head at Sierra, then cupped Llewellyn’s face and examined his complexion.
His face was as hot as a ball of fire in her hands, with fever spiking.
The pair of eyes looking at her were clouded from the heat, and for some reason, he had an expression of desperation on him. The expression was like a dog that was longingly looking at its master.
Rosenia felt strange to see him don a weak expression like this when just a few minutes ago he was being rough with Sierra.
‘The Duke of Rasiane is a two-faced man.‘
While having these trite thoughts in her head, Rosenia hugged Llewellyn tightly and then glanced at Sierra.
“I’m sorry, Miss Oscar, but can you step out for a moment? Please tell the servants outside not to let anyone in.”
“Ah, yes…! I see!”
Sierra, who had been quiet so far, quickly stepped out.
With a click, the door closed, leaving only Rosenia and Llewellyn alone in the drawing room.
Rosenia sighed, stroking Llewellyn’s head, while he caught his breath while hugging her tightly.
‘His mana outburst…. Umm, I need to somehow soothe it…’
She felt ashamed doing it here on the sofa of the drawing room.
‘Why did it have to cause an uproar here? Really! This damned mana!‘
Llewellyn tightened his hug, snuggling and borrowing in her arms even more… Rosenia was completely at a loss on how she’d deal with this man.
“Look at me for a second. Let me…”
Before she could finish her sentence, Llewellyn tilted up his head, immediately, meeting her eyes. He obviously knew what she was going to do. She looked at him with a dumbfounded look. Rosenia slowly bowed her head while gently stroking Llewellyn’s cheek.
It was not long before their lips met.
Rosenia tried to do it slowly and carefully, but she couldn’t pull herself together because Llewellyn kept rushing in.
He quickly went from a puppy that was drenched in rain, to an unrestrained beast. She was clearly only soothing him, but she was seamlessly turned into a herbivore that was being preyed on by him.
The moment his lips began sucking on the sensitive flesh on the nape, Rosenia felt gooseflesh running rampant, all over her back. Then Llewellyn whispered while pressing his lips gently on her skin: “Call me by my name….”
” Just like before…”
It wasn’t an unreasonable request, but the problem was that earlier when she called him by his name, she had done so unconsciously, but now that he asked her to do it, she found out that she couldn’t open her mouth at all!
“Won’t you call my name for me?”
Llewellyn urged her with an anxious voice. His tousled platinum blond hair was twinkling under the light of the chandelier. Rosenia, who had been lying on the sofa, looked up at him and slowly opened her mouth.
Her voice was low. She didn’t know if he could hear her, but she still called him anyway. She blushed and averted her gaze. She wondered why she was feeling so shy.
“Again, one more time.”
Llewellyn asked once again. This greedy man! Rosenia looked at him with watery eyes and tried calling him one more time.
This time, she called out his name clearly in a louder voice. Only then did Llewellyn smile faintly as if he was satisfied. His long, pretty hands gently caressed her face.
“It’s so nice to hear it. Seriously!”
His voice was giddying loud and cheery. What was the big deal about calling someone by their name? Feeling her face burning up, she turned a blind eye to him.
“I wish you’d call me by my name more often.”
“If you could… Ah, heuk…”
He groaned painfully again, and hurriedly bowed his head and kissed her.
His hot tongue slipped inside her mouth, exploring every corner of her mouth, and intertwined with her tongue. A moan leaked out of her throat as her body flinched. The heat rose to the top of her head and she felt hot and flushed.
Llewellyn withdrew his lips for a moment, exhaled heavily, and gently caressed her exposed shoulder. Rosenia didn’t know what on earth had happened, but her clothes were half off. It went without saying who the culprit was.
Rosenia glanced at Llewellyn and flinched a little when she felt his hand enter beneath the hem of her dress. But when he kissed her again, those thoughts completely vanished.
The way he licked, bit, and sucked her red, swollen lips, made her feel like she was on the verge of becoming delirious. She felt like she was a candy, not a person.
He pulled up the hem of the dress, completely exposing her pale thighs.
Rosenia was in disbelief at the things they were doing on the drawing room’s sofa; her eyes began tearing up in shame.
Llewellyn licked the shimmering tears from the corner of her eyes. His mana still fluctuated wildly, while it was channeling into her body.
“I want to be like this with you for the rest of my life.”
“Ah, wait a min—”
“I don’t like anybody getting between us.”
Llewellyn softly pressed his lips against her perspiring forehead and cheeks, one by one. There was a sweet and heart-melting smile on his face.
“Do you not also want the same? Wanting nobody other than me.”
“Rosenia, I want only me to do this for the rest of our lives.”
“You should call me Llewellyn, Rosenia.”
‘This crazy sadist… How am I supposed to answer that when you aren’t giving me any break at all? Now that I realize it, whenever this man reveals his sadist facet, he makes less and less sense.’
“Answer me, Rose…. Don’t rend my heart.”
“Oh, all… right…!”
“But, I can’t hear you well.”
I just told you!
The bad Llewellyn Rasiane’s harassment lasted for more than three hours.
During which they kept migrating from the sofa to the table, then from the table to the armchair, then to the window… It was really embarrassing, so she didn’t want to recall it again.
After being harassed by him, Llewellyn carefully wrapped her in a blanket and hugged her tightly.
Fortunately, there was no one in the hallway when they went outside. It seemed that the quick-witted servants had all retreated.
By the way, where could Sierra be right now?
The way Rosenia looked right now… she knew would land in serious trouble if Adrian saw her like this. Though her father was open-minded, it would still invite trouble.
“Are you tired?”
“…Duke, you look quite lively.”
“You’re calling me ‘Duke’ again. It would be nice if you could call me by my name.”
Llewellyn, who reverted to using a polite tone, had a pitiful look on his face. Rosenia was dumbfounded.
‘Do you think I’ll fall for that look after being harassed by you so much?’
“Ah, I got it. Llewellyn.”
His name came out this time too easily. It was because she couldn’t stand the burden of facing those tenacious emerald eyes.
‘I should have closed my eyes and pretended to have fallen asleep.’
Rosenia sighed deeply and snuggled a little further in the blanket. Somehow, she could hear Llewellyn’s chuckle from above her head.
“…Why are you laughing?”
“Because you’re cute.”
When she asked with a glare, Llewellyn replied with a bright smile. She couldn’t get angry at his smiling face, so she sighed again. Llewellyn kept laughing quietly at something he found quite funny.
The evening sun could already be seen setting out the window.
* * *
In the bathroom filled with warm steam.
Rosenia put a bath bomb in the bathwater, which was known for being quite rejuvenating and relieving fatigue, but she wondered whether they would be able to serve their purpose today.
She would probably get tired at night again anyway.
“….Llewellyn, keep your hands away.”
“Do you not like it?”
“No, it’s not that I don’t like it… you said we’d only be taking a bath.”
His hands, which had already been all over her body before, unmistakably held wicked intentions. Because of this, she couldn’t get enough rest and she’d suffer if it went on at this rate, so she stubbornly pushed him away.
‘Besides, I need to see Father and Adrian again! Adrian kept opposing our engagement, but then Sierra appeared and the issue somehow fizzled out…‘
The maid tacitly informed that Sierra had decided to stay in the spare room of the annexe, where the servants stayed. She could talk to Sierra again tomorrow, but she wanted to clearly settle the situation once and for all with her father and Adrian by today.
‘Father allowed us to get engaged, but if Adrian continues to oppose it, he may change his mind…’
No, no way! She couldn’t leave her father alone with Adrian! Maybe her father was being persuaded by Adrian’s words right at this moment!
‘I should quickly take a bath and then go see those two.’
As Rosenia got out from the bathtub, water slid down her curves. After she went out, she dried the water away from her body and wrapped herself in a robe. Llewellyn also followed after her and then hugged her from behind.
“Let’s stay like this a little longer….”
“I can’t. I have to go see my father and brother.”
Llewellyn sighed deeply at her firm answer. Being quick-witted, he noticed that she was being serious and let her go immediately.
“It can’t be helped. Then we can only look forward to seeing each other at night.”
As expected, he intended to harass her again at night.
Shaking her head at Llewellyn’s shamelessness, Rosenia dried her hair and changed her clothes. The maids tied her hair neatly like how the elegant ladies did. This gave her a fairly new feel, but she knew it was going to get messed up later anyway.
By the very hands of Duke Rasiane, who was known for being an ascetic.
Llewellyn asked as if wondering what she was mumbling, but Rosenia brushed it off with a grin and then draped a summer lace shawl, brought by the maids, on her shoulder.
After they both finished grooming, Llewellyn and Rosenia headed to the guest room, holding hands.
Adrian and her father were staying in a guest room with two connected bedrooms and a large living room in between.
A meal for the two had been delivered to the living room, so they probably were having their meals in the living room. But Adrian was probably not even taking a bite.
‘How should I convince the stubborn Adrian…’
Rosenia had deep thoughts churning inside her while she walked, but the hallway had somehow become noisy.
Wondering what was going on, she quickly approached the scene with Llewellyn.
“Everyone, please move aside.”
She made her way through the crowd and what finally came into her sight was …
Henry sitting on the floor on the hallway, and Adrian who was holding Alex in his hand.
